Carnival Cruise Line has enhanced its pay-over-time program to allow payments in convenient monthly installments leading to the departure date. Announced in June, EasyPay is a hassle-free vacation payment option allowing guests’ cruise payments to be automatically deducted from the credit card on file and applied to their current balance interest-free.
With the new monthly payment feature, guests can extend their payment on a monthly basis based on the number of months prior to sailing (for instance, if the departure date is six months away, guests will make six equal payments after the initial deposit is made). Previously, guests could only divide their payments into three monthly installments.
After making their initial deposit, guests’ balance is charged in equal payments that are taken out automatically on the same designated day each month. The program is available via carnival.com or the line’s call centers. Travel agents can also sign up for Carnival EasyPay to process payments on behalf of their clients.
Guests must make a required deposit on their cruise fare to be eligible for Carnival EasyPay with the first installment charged to guests’ credit card 30 days from the date of the deposit and additional monthly installments thereafter. While Carnival EasyPay is available at no cost, guests are responsible for any interest charges by their credit card provider.
